‘Evangelical’ Isn’t a Dirty Word

Many evangelical Christians today face an identity crisis. Evangelicals have a storied history in American public life. They figured prominently in the movement to end slavery. Evangelicals are now an increasingly familiar presence in American intellectual life, having shed the anti-intellectualism of the early 20th century. I believe that Christianity is self-correcting. And because evangelicalism is a faithful understanding of Christianity’s essence, I believe it is self-correcting, too.
